In class we have been given a choice of types of 3D arts to make. Recently, I’ve been working on a 3D wire sculpture of a corgi. I chose to make a wire corgi because I thought wire art would be an interesting new thing for me to try out and I always love corgis dearly. I saw wire art of a corgi and decided to try something like it..
Though at first I had a difficult time deciding what I wanted to make, I know what I want to do with it. I am a little behind but I am very motivated by this piece. I’m very inexperienced with wire so I tried starting with the legs of the corgi, but the wire I used made it harder for smaller legs so I made it a little bigger. The corgi may end up life size in the end due to the size of the legs (though corgis aren’t big in the real life.)
I plan to make to make the corgi by giving it an outline with a thicker wire, then wrapping everything together with a thinner one to hold it all together. I’m giving it just a plan standing stance to simplify things for me, but I still need to find a way that will make sure it can stand upright on it’s on.I’m having difficulty with having the Corgi stand up on it’s own though. If you have any tips or help with that, then that would be wonderful!
